Retail and Rewards Cards and Added Benefits

Some cards by CIBC feature aeroplan and rewards points while others go with Petro points for generous fuel savings. CIBC features handy tools for online bill payment and improved security. Secured cards are also available to international students and Canadians with less-than-perfect credit. The bank also offers retail rewards and travel cards with premium privileges and benefits such as welcome bonuses of 25,000 aeroplan miles, extra miles for purchases at select retailers, and grocery and gas purchases, preferential treatment, and other perks.  Cardholders are offered access to exciting events, weekend getaways, escapes, discounted airfare, and other travel privileges.  Holders also earn extra rewards points at participating inns, hotels, spas, and restaurants and there are no hidden costs or fees. Flights to Europe require between 50,000 and 70,000 air miles. Emergency cash advances and personalized checks are also available.


CIBC partners with merchants and hotel chains that offer weekend gateways, tickets for exclusive performances, and travel. Customers who wish to minimize their carbon footprint can choose from a selection of green products such as bags, bamboo sets, organic towel sets, cutting boards, cookware sets, outdoor composters, and a lot more. There are other shopping categories, and customers are free to browse by brand and mileage level. Items such as bamboo kitchen sets and carbon offsets require less than 10,000 aeroplan miles while items such as electric bikes, laptops, and push mowers require 50,000 to 100,000+ points. There are gift cards for long distance calls, entertainment, and coffee breaks. You can also support charities such as Veterinarians without Borders and Engineers without Borders.
